My mind conjures many questions in the early hours of the morning: some of them are reasonable, rational even. For example, “Is it worth the embarrassment of being the crappiest one in the yoga class to reduce my aches and pains?” (No.) Some are less sensible. For example, “If a big, green, slobbery monster burst into the bedroom right now would I sacrifice the dogs life to save myself?” (Sadly, yes.)
One thought that wandered through my mind, somewhere between reasonable and weird, was that traditional clothing buttons were really ready-made tiny frames.
It also occurred to me that it was my duty to see if I could make earrings that were beyond cuteness using them. . .
Once again, Google images came to the rescue – search criteria “cats in clothes”: that could keep you entertained all by itself. I know it did me, for a good ten minutes. In the end I picked out this guy, but trust me it was not an easy choice. . .
First I put the image into Powerpoint so I could squish it into a circle shape rather than an oval. Then I messed around with different sizes, until it looked button-sized (a highly technical matter).
Then it was just a case of cut and mod podge :
I superglued some posts to the back and voila. Obviously not everyone appreciates cats in clothes (although I can’t imagine why not), but pretty much anything could go in here. More than worth the effort, I assure you.
